This week's episode of the New Heights podcast was full of special guests, including Philadelphia Eagles fan and actor Rob McElhenney. In the middle of the broadcast, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce stopped the conversation to answer a call from fellow Cleveland native and musician Machine Gun Kelly.

When Travis answered the phone, Machine Gun Kelly had an offer forcing Chiefs fans to imagine a world without the All-Pro tight end wearing the red and gold in exchange for Cleveland's orange and brown.

Once Travis answered the call, there was some friendly banter between the two before Machine Gun Kelly tried to make a convincing recruitment pitch for Travis to take his talents to Cleveland. Kelly had the following offer for Travis:

  • $500K dollars in cash on arrival for whatever Travis would want to spend it on. Saying he would have the cash on the tarmac when Kelce arrived in a briefcase.
  • $500K dollars donated to Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights High Schools. It is well known that Travis and Jason Kelce are Cleveland Heights alums, but Machine Gun Kelly graduated from Shaker Heights High School, four miles from where the Kelce brothers went to school.
  • Breakfast and Coffee would be delivered every day from Machine Gun Kelly's restaurant 27 Club Coffee located in Cleveland Ohio, serving coffee sandwiches and craft cocktails.
  • Machine Gun Kelly would play beats in the locker room every day.

In the end, Machine Gun Kelly added, "All of this for you to come home, and put on these colors right here. Put these colors on and come rock this city."

Travis had some fun with the offer because he shared a love of the Cleveland area, and Travis later mentioned it was once a dream to play for the Cleveland Browns. Chiefs fans can take a deep breath because Travis responded, "I am not going to lie; the situation is pretty nice in Kansas City."

After the friendly phone call was over, Jason and Travis recapped the offer from Machine Gun Kelly, but in case there were any doubts of where Travis wanted to end his career he made it quite clear by saying, "Chiefs Kingdom, you know I love playing for the Kingdom baby. I don't think I will play anywhere else."

The offer was fun to listen to, mainly because a fan of Kelce's was willing to use his money and resources to bring the future Hall of Famer to Cleveland to play for the Browns. Overall, the exchange was comical, and you could hear the love the Kelce brothers have for the East Cleveland area. Still, I could not imagine a world where Travis Kelce left the Chiefs to play for another team, even if it was to play near his hometown.

Luckily for Chiefs Kingdom, Kelce appears to be a Chief for life, but free breakfast and coffee? That is a tough offer to pass up.
